Two men then got out and forcefully robbed the couple, police say.
“I’m the type of person where I care about [it], even like if that happened to a random couple that still upsets me. That’s messed up so something needs to be done,” said Madison Morton, a shopper.
Exactly what was stolen was not disclosed, but the couple had been shopping at a store along the 1100 block of Galleria Boulevard.READ MORE: 2 Tigers At Pittsburgh Zoo Test Positive For COVID-19
